I have a B.A. in history, a J.D., and an M.F.A. in creative writing. I am a published short story writer. Although I have only recently listed myself on WyzAnt (in February 2013), I have long tutored middle school and high school students in language arts, English and writing and have worked with high school students on the S.A.T. writing section, as well as college application essays.I have also worked with med school and business school applicants on their application essays and on the writing section of the GMAT. I am a lifelong student, reader and writer. I seek to give students the tools so that they too can learn to love writing and develop their own voices. I don't have a set "curriculum." I like to look at a student's writing and get a sense of his or her strengths and weaknesses. I aim to teach students how to write well-organized and compelling prose and to have fun while doing it.

College Counseling

I have worked with students on their college and grad school admission essays, including essays for the Common App for college and essays for med school applications. Working on application essays is one of my favorite jobs. I love learning about people and strategizing with them as to what might make the most compelling subject for an essay and then helping them to find their own voice in writing it. I have a B.A. in history, a J.D., and an M.F.A. in creative writing.

Criminal Justice

I have a J.D. degree. I worked as a lawyer for almost 25 years, practicing in both the civil and criminal areas.
